According to a tally from the U.S. Elections Project at the University of Florida, more than 90 million Americans have cast ballots in the U.S. presidential election, setting the stage for the highest participation rate in over a century. The record-breaking pace, about 65% of the total turnout in 2016, reflects intense interest in the vote, in which incumbent Donald Trump, a Republican, is up against Democratic nominee Joe Biden, a former vice president. Huge numbers of people have voted by mail or at early in-person polling sites amid concerns about exposure to the coronavirus at busy Election Day voting places.
